Before the menopause, hair roots are protected by high levels of female hormones (estrogen). After the menopause, estrogen levels will decline and the impact of male hormones (testosterone) will increase. The consequences: hair grows thinner and falls out prematurely, the scalp becomes more visible and the hairline recedes. Nature's phyto active ingredients help the scalp protect itself from the consequences of declining estrogen levels. The Caffeine-based formula encourages stronger hair growth after the menopause. Use the dosage tip to apply directly into the scalp and massage in. Do not rinse out! Allow solution to penetrate before brushing and then style as usual. For best results, use after Plantur 39 Phyto-Caffeine Shampoo.
